IBM in Cloud deal with Coca-Cola Amatil

Enterprise IT vendor IBM announced its Cloud deal with Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA).

The five-year agreement aims at streamlining CCA’s operations and processes across the South Pacific region.

CCA, which operates in six countries including Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and Samoa, is expected to drive significant operational costs out of the business.

Coca-Cola Amatil will deploy IBM cloud platform in Australia and Indonesia initially to optimize and streamline its order management and distribution processes; increase operational efficiencies; and better customer experience across the two geographies.
Coca-Cola Amatil CIO Barry Simpson said: “Indonesia is a vastly different market to Australia, as it has a more diverse trade to support across both modern and traditional channels. By using a common cloud platform across Australia and Indonesia, we will be able standardize and automate our operations and bring a consistent level of efficiency to our Indonesian business.”

As per the Cloud deal, IBM will manage CCA’s SAP infrastructure in a cloud environment hosted in IBM’s data centre in Sydney, Australia, which will eventually act as a cloud hub for the rest of CCA’s South Pacific operations.
